Observation on Ultrastructure of Rabbit Cysticercus pisiformis
2012, 5(5), 102-106.
To observe ultrastructure of rabbit Cysticercus pisiformis.
Cysticercus pisiformis of naturally infected rabbit was collected and
prepared for Transmission Electron Microscope (TEM) examinations. Under TEM,
cysticercosis pisiformis appeared to be ovoid form which comprised cyst wall,
cyst fluid, scolex and cervical segment from outer to inner side. The structure
of cyst wall was 3 layers (cortex, mesenchyina and parenchyma) of which the
cortex was composed of 2 layers regular long strip shape cells, the mesenchyina
included a large number of glycogen granules and some bunches of fiber and the
parenchyma included two kinds of cells besides glycogen granules and fiber.
One kind was calcareous corpuscles cell and the other was spindle cell with
bigger nuclear. The scolex comprised cortex, mesenchyina and parenchyma from
outer to inner side of which the outside cortex laid a large number of regular
microvilli, the mesenchyina laid a large number of structureless fibrous material
and glycogen granules and the parenchyma laid parenchymal cells, cortical cell,
myoblast, flame cell, calcareous corpuscles cell, hamulus, collecting duct and
excretory duct. The structure of cervical segment was similar with that of the
scolex which included collecting duct and gather duct net. The ultrastructure
of rabbit cysticercosis pisiformis was similar with that of the reported other
cestode except a large number of regular microvilli in the cortex of scolex,
sparser microvilli in cervical segment than scolex and no microvilli in cyst
wall. Furthermore, 2 layers regular long strip shape cells were in the cortex
of cyst wall which had no report in cysticercus cellulosae and sheep coenosis.
